There is goodness in everyone. When it activates and truly comes alive, great things can happen.
The best way we know to bring it out is to volunteer. Whether it’s for an hour, a day, once a week or once a month, you can create a tremendous impact on another person’s life.
As COVID-19 continues to affect communities in our area, we encourage willing volunteers to contribute where they can. You can search our portal to find where you can volunteer to help people impacted by COVID-19 or donate to our Emergency Assistance Fund for COVID-19 relief. Stay up to date on future volunteer opportunities by subscribing to our quarterly newsletter.
